The shady actor Abdulmesih Barabraham is accused of ruining efforts to create an Assyrian exile parliament.
In early February 2020, a group of Assyrians gathered in the German city of Wiesbaden. They have been working for a long time to form an Assyrian exile parliament.
Information that huyada.com has received indicates that the previously united group has split up as a result of things that happened during the conference in Wiesbaden. An official statement emailed on March 29 by the president of the Assyrian Confederation in Germany confirms the split.
The statement said: The preparatory committee was formed during the Wiesbaden conference in early February 2020, after which some UCAP members did not want to follow the decision of the Wiesbaden conference and decided to pursue the idea of creating an “Assyrian parliament of exile”.
The written statement thus confirms previous rumors of division within the group. Supplementary information that huyada.com has received reveals that Abdulmesih Barabraham, who was previously noted for his efforts to oppose the Assyrian Confederation of Europe, is behind the split that took place during the Wiesbaden conference.
According to people familiar with the issue Abdulmesih Barabraham has acted behind the scenes to kidnap the project and appoint his own allies to the constituent committee, which he succeeded in and which has made the split a reality.
A person close to the events whom huyada.com has spoken to and who does not want to remain anonymous describes the event as follows:
Abdulmesih saw an opportunity to take advantage of this group that wants to form an exile parliament for his own purposes and made sure that he and his allies, like Aziz Said (chairman of the Assyrian Confederation in Germany) became part of the project and then in Wiesbaden practically kidnap it and start using the group for their own purposes”.
Barabraham’s motive for acting as he did during the Wiesbaden conference seems to continue to be to oppose the Assyrian Confederation of Europe, now by trying to overshadow the organization by forming something called the World Assyrian Confederation, according to another document that huyada.com has received a copy of.
Hyada.com has sought Abdulmesih Barabraham for a comment.
